Great board after getting proper drivers 11/12/2013
This review is from: ASUS X79 DELUXE LGA 2011 Intel X79 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
4960x installed on board and runs smooth at 4.5ghz oc.
Using 48gb of corsair ram with no problems. Will get another 12gb once RMA comes back. Minor hiccups with install but resolved after getting proper drivers.
This is my second board, first one didn't post after a bios update. Lesson learned. Board was getting BSOD after shutdown and after a couple hours of trouble shooting, the problem was narrowed down to either the Intel or Realtek NIC drivers. I'm using Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit and Asus stock LAN drivers caused BSODs after shutdown. Get the latest drivers directly from Intel and Realtek. Also there's a trick to getting AI Suite to install correctly (google it).
